Yeahhhhh.  And then I popped my SI joint on one of my last sets of cleans.  260x2 would have been cake too.

thanks guys.  The injury will set me back from full training for about 4 weeks.  I'll be back to front squatting next week probably, but i'll have to work tempo hard and start kind of light. I'll be able to jump and run shortly though. I am working pistol squats like crazy at the moment, trying to get up to Javier Sotomayor status (300 for reps according to Dan Pfaff.... unbelievable!)

I swear I thought you were going to jump after the first step you took... it really looked like a drop into a jump your first left leg step you did haha.

What's going on with your SI? What did you feel?

thanks guys. 

Kingfish, I just wish I had your standing vertical! Mine is only around 33 right now. 

Raptor, my injury isn't too bad.  it has been much worse in the past, basically I just can't jump off two legs right now, and squatting heavy is out of the question.  I really want to get back to it soon though, my olympic lifts have been going through the roof!

I think I was at the point where I could have hang cleaned about 275+ and snatch was going to hit 225 shortly.  Oh well, I'll get them both in a month hopefully, although seeing that hang cleans were the cause of my injury.... i don't know how soon i'll be going back to them. 

the cool thing about returning to squatting after an SI joint injury is I brace the hell out of my core when I squat, and get serious glute activation as well, because I move slow and am so scared of hurting myself again.... and I usually pick up a few inches of vertical in the process :)  i think also it gives a chance for my fatigue from squatting heavy to go away and I can usually jump and bound really well.

Blessing in disguise, eh?

Remember me to pretend I have a SI injury next time I squat. Oh wait, I actually do! I had one a few months ago were it would take me around 5 minutes to get out of bed. Not really, but around 1 minute in "literal" time. And even so, a few lightning bolts would've still strike my back, all coming from the left SI. I could not bend forward (as in a hamstring stretch) lower than the knee without feeling pain in my upper portion of my left buttock.

Self diagnosis told "piriformis syndrome". It eventually passed away but very hard. The reason for the injury was calf raises on a Smith Machine (barbell), because I needed to put something exactly underneath the bar to increase the calf raise ROM and if it wasn't perfectly aligned, you'd do them with a bent back. Even a little would make a big difference. And to re-rack the ... "bar", you'd need to bend and twist at the waist.

Never doing that again.
